Maria Sharapova: MET Worst Red
What happens when you’re the highest paid female tennis player on the tour and you fail a drug test? Well, if you’re Maria Sharapova, people rush to give you the benefit of the doubt. And you get photographed frolicking on the sand just days later, like you have no care in the world. And then! And then!
You get to go to the MET Gala. In a custom dress. And nobody, but f-cking nobody, is mad at you.
What would have happened if that was Serena Williams? You know the answer to this question. And it’s enraging.
So, yeah, the only consolation here is that Maria’s dress sucks. The two spaghetti straps on either side are entirely unnecessary. Those sleeve-gloves are also unnecessary and stupid. And nobody bothered to tell her that that one earring doesn’t work on someone so beige.
